Title:Automation Planning and Implementation: Library and Vendor Responsibilities
Author(s):Burke, Jane
Subject(s):Libraries --Automation

Library catalogs and users
Abstract:In this paper I will move through the various stages of automating, bringing in aspects of human relationships that seem appropriate. My remarks are intended for librarians who are well past the beginning and are in the serious stages of planning i.e., either writing the RFP (request for proposal) or evaluating or awarding RFPs. Sara Fine provided a good theoretical background for understanding resistance to change and why it happens. I would like to make a few specific applications of Fine's theory to libraries and library staff.
